Registration is required for all programs and will be taken only through online registration or by mail on a first-come, first-served basis. Program registrations will not be taken by phone. Walk-ins are welcome.

2020 scholarship eligibility form

Supervision, caregivers

If the individual participating requires one-on-one supervision or personal care assistance, we highly recommend you provide a caregiver/CLS Worker for the support needed. Due to the nature of our activities and a large number of participants, we are not able to provide one-on-one support.  Program staff will be present to facilitate activities and provide a safe and therapeutic recreation environment for participants.

Transportation

As a rule, transportation to and from programs and events is the responsibility of the participant, parents or caregivers.

Make-up events, refunds

We will attempt to make-up missed classes due to inclement weather. However, due to scheduling, this may not be feasible. Refunds or credits are not given for missed classes or programs.
